So if I’m still doing my own little award show along with these A-Z thingos? Beth Orton can wins my fave or greatest living English singer-songwriter today! It seems like a very long time ago now but Mark E. Smith did already win one for dead English singer-songwriter and The Fall win English band. So doing the polar opposite because, if you’ve not been able to tell by now? I do like to mix it up a bit! If you’ve not heard Beth before she continues the very long history of U.K. folk music but she throws in electronic, debuting in the 90’s and her seventh album was out in 2016. I’ve not blogged her about for a while but when I do I most likely say the same thing which is I love her! Seen her a few times live which I think I’ve typed this before somewhere on my blog but she’s really funny, joking about in between songs, she got that absurd British humour which I don’t you get much in her music. Anyway at the very top of the post is her song Moon because it was on her last wicked album of 2016 which was called Kidsticks and that word does have two letter “O” is it too!
Six more letter “O” song I total love and want to share with you:
Bo Diddley – Ohh Baby (1966)
Leonard Cohen – One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong (1969)
The Lighthouse Keepers – Ocean Liner (1984)
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Orange (1994)
Swans – Oxygen (2014)
Time For Dreams – Operator (2017)
Seven song again today! Please do tell which one you enjoy the best?
